Behind The Camera

Lynsie headshot=

My name is Lynsie and I’m a self-taught photographer. I was born and raised in the PNW, I love the outdoors and cherish good weather (since we get very little each year). I have two fur-babies; a cat named Emmy and a dog named Janey. We are always looking for more adventures and enjoy things like hiking, camping, gardening and soaking up some Vitamin D.

The real reason I’m still rambling on and on is because I wanted to share more about me and the reason I started my business. My Father was born with Spina Bifida and doctor’s said he wouldn’t live past his teens. His family was poor and didn’t have any money for medical treatment so just accepted and hoped the doctors were wrong. My Father beat the odds and lived to be 69. He passed away in October of 2013 and I spent the last few years taking care of him. He was on dialysis full time, handicap and the list grew with medical issues from dialysis and age. I had just graduated college, trying to start a career, have a personal life and take care of my dad all at the same time! It was a very large responsibility at a young age but I didn’t know anything different. Fast forward to the start of 2016 – I was finally able to look at a picture of my Father without balling my eyes out for the first time in years. I want to help people remember their loved ones, capture memories and hopefully help provide peace and happiness in hard times. In my 28 years I have lost too many friends to suicide and family to illness or disease. My father, friends and family are the reason I started my business and I absolutely love what I do!
